Pencil-neck is at it again.
The Washington Post published a page-one above the fold story reporting that an illegally obtained audio reporting of a conversation between Congressman Matt Gaetz and me at a conservative conference in Florida in 2019 showed me asking for Gaetz’s support of a presidential pardon and reflecting precisely what Gaetz had said public ally on numerous occasions; not only did he support such a pardon but he was confident that President Trump would see the injustice and corruption of my indictment and would ultimately issue presidential clemency in my case.
The Post’s page-one “nothingburger,” actually undercut a frequent lie told by Hillary Clinton, Congressman Jerry Nadler, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and Congressman Adam Schiff – that I had somehow traded my silence regarding unspecified wrongdoing by the President in return for clemency – an oft repeated lie for which there is no evidence nor truth.
Within hours, the odious Adam Schiff posted a recycle of this claim on Twitter. The idea of Adam Schiff accusing anyone of lying, given his track record, is fairly entertaining in itself.
The previous weekend, Congressman Adam Schiff – who lied for over two years about having seen more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between Russian intelligence and the Trump campaign – was on CBS’s Face The Nation and claimed that the January 6th Committee had “established links between Trump advisors Roger Stone and General Michael Flynn and the extremist groups who attacked the Capitol on January 6th.”
Schiff is, of course, trying to imply that General Flynn and I had advance knowledge or were involved in some way in the illegal actions at the Capitol on January 6th, which is not only categorically false but also for which there is no evidence whatsoever. It is a classic use of the “guilt by association” tactic that Schiff and his understudy Rep. Jamie Raskin, are so adept at.
January 6th Unselect Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson told The Hill that additional evidence regarding this alleged “link” was not included in the televised committee hearings for lack of time, claiming that because testimony by White House Counsel Pat Cipollone had to be included in the same televised hearing, that the “script” had to be changed. In other words, they have no evidence of wrongdoing by either me or Flynn. This is the same exact line of disinformation that Schiff and his sidekick Congressman Eric Swalwell used in the entire “Russian collusion” hoax.
When President Donald Trump recognized the political nature of my indictment for “lying to Congress” about “Russian collusion” which we now know never even happened, as well as the epic rigging and corruption of my DC trial; he first commuted my prison sentence and ultimately issued me a full and unconditional presidential pardon. A quick scan of mainstream media articles will reveal that while the commutation of my prison sentence was widely reported, today, most “news organizations” omit any mention of the pardon.
When the news of my commutation was released, Schiff almost immediately recycled the same discredited BS that he had pushed for three years; “Roger Stone was the link between the Trump campaign and Russian Intelligence officer(s).” Schiff is well aware of the fact that my completely benign exchange via Twitter direct message with the persona of Guccifer 2.0 took place after WikiLeaks had already published all of their documents regarding Hillary and the DNC and that the content of this exchange showed no evidence whatsoever of collusion, collaboration or cooperation. He also knows I released the entire exchange in 2017 so none of this was a revelation.
In fact, Schiff knows that the assertion that Guccifer 2.0 is a “Russian intelligence officer” is a spurious claim by John Brennan’s CIA but is a question much in dispute. Former NSA counter-intelligence officer Bill Binney and former CIA counter-terrorism officer Ray McGovern have written thousands of words and produced overwhelming forensic evidence that indicates that Guccifer 2.0 is more likely a CIA created cutout as well as establishing that the evidence that the Russians executed an online hack of the DNC is nonexistent.
Mueller’s prosecutors argued that my case had to be heard by Judge Amy Berman Jackson because they claimed my indictment was a “related case” to the case of seventeen alleged Russian intelligence agents who Mueller claimed had hacked the Democratic National Committee. Mueller’s prosecutors even promised the Judge that they would produce evidence against me gleaned from search warrants in said Russian hackers case at my trial. They, of course, provided no such thing. The Russian hackers case has never even gone to the discovery phase (of course), and thus neither Mueller nor the “intelligence agencies” he cites in that case have ever been required to produce actual prove that the DNC was the target of an online hack by Russian assets.
Judge Jackson prohibited my defense attorneys from producing expert witnesses or any forensic evidence which would have proved that the underlying premise of my criminal indictment –that the Russians hacked the DNC – never actually happened, and that the forensic evidence proves that data stolen from the DNC had, in fact, been downloaded to some kind of portable drive and physically removed from the DNC headquarters.
Schiff, discredited former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the weasel most responsible for the illegitimate Mueller investigation, former acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, still think that if they repeat these lies over and over again enough times, they can recreate the magic of the early days of the Mueller investigation before declassified documents were finally released proving that the entire “Russian collusion” claim was a hoax. Indeed, Schiff and his cronies are now reusing the same tactics in their January 6th witch-hunt.
In retrospect, I now recognize that every question that I was charged with lying in my answer to was posed by Adam Schiff. It is now abundantly clear that Robert Mueller’s dirtiest cop Aaron Zelinsky, a former Hillary Clinton State Department lawyer, bully and corrupt prosecutor shared the fruits of the search warrants in my case which he defrauded multiple federal judges and magistrates to obtain with Schiff, sifting through my emails in order to structure “gotcha” questions for my voluntary appearance before the house intelligence committee.
Then, in direct violation of House rules, Schiff shared my classified testimony with Zelinsky. Zelinsky wasn’t bright enough to draft an indictment from such thin gruel, so he went to one of the most corrupt and sadistic prosecutors in US history, Andrew Weissman. Since Mueller is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and was reputably referred to as “mumbles” around the Special Counsel’s office, Weissman was really running the whole corrupt show. This shifty maneuver by Adam Schiff explains why, again in violation of House Rules, Schiff and his sidekicks Rep. Eric Swalwell and Rep. Joaquin Castro all predicted immediately after my testimony that I would be indicted for perjury. What did they I know that I didn’t?
The antics of Adam Schiff are standard operating procedure for this charlatan, who frequently makes explosive public charges readily lapped up by the lap-dog media in order to generate headlines. Schiff and his enablers in the media virtually never come up with proof to back his accusations.
In fact, it’s carny barker Schiff’s trail of fabrications that are always shifting. Let’s review his sordid record;
In a March 22, 2017 exchange with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily, Todd suggested that the evidence of collusion was at best circumstantial. “Actually, no, Chuck,” Schiff said. “I can tell you that the case is more than that. And I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now. … I will say that there is evidence that is not circumstantial and is very much worthy of investigation.”
On Nov. 1, during a House Intelligence Committee hearing, Schiff laid out the evidence for Trump-Russia collusion. “What is clear is this: the Kremlin repeatedly told the campaign it had dirt on Clinton and offered to help it, and at least one top Trump official, the president’s own son, accepted.” Schiff, of course ignored that fact that Donald Trump, Jr. received nothing whatsoever from the Russian lawyer he met with, and that the Russian woman in question met both before and after the Trump Tower meeting with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, who produced the bogus dossier about Trump with assistance from Russian intelligence assets. Schiff also ignored questions about who issued her visa to enter the country — after the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York denied it. Of course, Schiff never lets the facts get in the way of a good political smear.
On Dec. 10, 2017 Schiff once again stated, “We have all of these facts in chronology, you’d have to believe that these were all isolated incidents, not connected to each other — just doesn’t make rational sense … We do know this: the Russians offered help, the campaign accepted help, the Russians gave help and the president made full use of that help. That is pretty damning, whether it is proof beyond a reasonable doubt of conspiracy or not.”
Again, the Trump campaign accepted and made use of nothing. But don’t interrupt little Adam Schiff when he’s on a rhetorical roll.
Schiff stated on Feb. 7, 2018 that there was “certainly a lot of evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.” He added, “In terms of ethical violations and acting against the interest of the United States, that evidence is already ample and in the public view.”
Again, the congressman from West Hollywood has produced evidence of no such thing.
In what appeared to be a direct reversal, Schiff appeared on ABC’s “The View” on March 3, 2018. He finally had to concede that the panel he co-chaired had seen no evidence at all that the Trump campaign “colluded” with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
Yet on April 15, appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Schiff made a point to say that it was “simply not true” that there had been no evidence the 2016 presidential campaign for Donald Trump colluded with Russia.”
Schiff, the ever-hopeful wannabe star, continued making headlines such as this one on April 27, 2018: “ADAM SCHIFF ANNOUNCES DEMOCRATS HAVE EVIDENCE OF TRUMP/RUSSIA COLLUSION.” The story quoted Schiff: “In fact, we found evidence of collusion in the abundant secret meetings and communications between Trump campaign officials and associates.”
Finally, Schiff changed his assertions of collusion yet again on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” As if trying to clarify his many contradictory statements, he defended his committee’s investigation, saying: “At the outset of the investigation, there was circumstantial evidence of collusion.” You will recall back in 2017 he told Chuck Todd, who should be working behind the counter at Macy’s, “I will say that there is evidence that is not circumstantial…..”Little Adam Schiff can’t keep his lies straight.
None of this of course even touches on his ridiculous antics during the Ukrainian impeachment hoax where Schiff once again got caught lying about meeting with the so-called “whistleblower.” It’s a safe bet to say that the entire Ukrainian scam was cooked up in Adam Schiff’s office after their entire Russian collusion farce crashed and burned. Now incredibly Schiff is trying to fan the embers of the Russian collusion delusion one more time.
One thing is abundantly clear. If Robert Mueller and his dirty cop minions had any proof whatsoever that I worked with Russian intelligence to steal and disseminate data from the democrats, they most certainly would have charged me with it. If Mueller and his henchmen had any evidence that I had received documents from WikiLeaks (who they still falsely claim received the documents from the Russians) and passed them on to the Trump campaign, they would have charged me with that. In fact, if Mueller and his 12 angry democrats had any proof beyond the plea bargained induced uncorroborated claims of convicted liars Michael Cohen and Rick Gates that I ever even spoke to Donald Trump about WikiLeaks, they surely would have indicted me on that charge and would have used it to impeach the President.
Then, of course, Schiff invented a “whistleblower” for the purposes of a second failed impeachment against President Donald Trump in the Ukranian hoax. The “whistleblower” turned out to be a member of his own staff.
Schiff also famously altered text messages between White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Congressman Jim Jordan regarding January 6th before leaking them to the media.
This is, of course, the same Adam Schiff who insisted that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop was “disinformation direct from the Kremlin,” a claim that now even The New York Times recognizes is entirely false.
If CBS was a legitimate news organization, they might think twice about even interviewing Congressman Adam Schiff, given his long record of lying to the public, but then we know CBS is not an unbiased news organization but merely a co-conspirator in the frenzied effort to destroy President Donald Trump and anyone who is loyal to him.
